till I’m on the beach in the Bahamas:) This Atlantis Resort is quite the place (I may even get the opportunity to see a Regis & Kelly Live show while there). I can’t wait to give thanks this Thanksgiving with my family on the beach away from all the normal hustle and bustle at home (if we survive Philadelphia Airport Thanksgiving Morning…and the flight…so afraid to fly). Done rambling. How appropriate but to make a card with a “beach theme”.
This was made with a new MFT magnetic tag card (great for holiday gift cards) & Daisy Box Blend Flowers (holiday mix). I just sponged Bordering Blue ink to the white flower so it coordinated with my card and ribbon.
So many cool little details on this card:
- I created the scalloped border on the main image with the wave/water edge stamp in the stamp set (cute isn’t it?)
- Ahhh, wondering how the tag card is going to fit in the provided envelope? The sentiment swivles so it can be turned in to the inside of the tag card.
- I added little Chocolate Chip polka dots to all the red polka dots to make the Chocolate chip coordinate and flow with the pattern of the printed flower
- The water…..oh so refreshing (and did I mention 1 day to go…he! he!) It was watercolored with Bordering Blue ink, color spritzed with Bordering Blue Stampin’ Write Marker, added some Micro Beads and Crystal Effects.
This was a very fun card to make. I included some upclose photos below to show more details.
ALSO, I WILL BE DRAWING MY BLOG CANDY GIVEAWAY FOR 45,000 TONIGHT AT APPROXIMATELY 5:00 PM. (wow! should make it for 50,000 hits) SO HURRY IF YOU HAVEN’T LEFT A COMMENT:)
